I have VERY sad news, friends...

Dan Murphy

We are family.

I am going to print this thread out for both Sylvia's mom, Margarete, and her SO, Dan. If anyone has missed this or wanted to add a comment, I thought I would bring it forward for one last time, not to bring sadness, but rather to celebrate a fine woman.

Thank you for bringing it back up, Dan. I never posted on this one originally and didn't know if I should or not as time went on. Thank you Dan for the beautiful tribute to Sylvia. You are a good friend.

I never had many interactions with Sylvia. But I had a great deal of respect for her. She was such a fine person and so courageous. She touched so many people while fighting her cancer. I was always so impressed with how upbeat she seemed to be in each of her posts. I have been praying for her family and friends and will continue to do so.

The following picture is a Shasta Daisy which has been planted in memory of Sylvia. Many of the posters on the *Garden Thread* had decided that it would be a wonderful tribute to Sylvia if we all chose and planted a plant in her honor.

After posting this picture on the garden thread, the following comments were made:

"that single bloom is really a striking statement - almost as if the plant knows it is a memorial to a single soul that shone with equal beauty and grace. Thanks for sharing the picture." (DixieDreamer)

"your picture of Sylvia's Shasta Daisy is great, such a pure white, reaching for the sky." (Snowwark)

"thanks for sharing that picture with us..beautiful." (Amid Chaos)

"I agree with Kim about the symbolism of your single shasta daisy flower. That's beautiful!" (TimNDansMom)

Interspersed in the pages prior to where this picture is on the Garden Thread, there are many postings regarding which type of plant different people picked to honor Sylvia. I found that reading very moving.

Rest assure, Sylvia lives on in the hearts and minds of so many people she never met!
